Antique Lures

Recommended Posts

mjk

Hello,

I've acquired some older lures from a deceased friend of the family. I don't really think they are worth anything special. That being said, I'd like to know if there is anyone in the metro area who might have knowledge of older lures. I'd like to simply sit down with someone and hear what they have to say - both on the lures, and the original manufacturers.

I appreciate it, if you can point me in a direction that helps me.

Thanks.

OR, if you know the names of the lures, go on the electronic bay auction site and see what they are going for.

There are many ways to get an idea of what your lures are worth. hsolist tends to be a bit over inflated for the most part. Look up the national freshwater lure collectors club there are avid collectors there that would give you an idea of worth and could probably tell you a bit about the lure. There are lots of books out there including the lure collectors bible/encyclopedia which has pics and descriptions as well as a collectors value range. I would sure like to see what you have and would be able to clue you in as to what they are and a general collectors value if your willing to post some pics here.

What tunrevir said. I can give you an idea. I have a modest collection and a few books. I'm losing my edge though after stopping cold turkey. Last time someone posted a pic on here, I messed one of the lures up and could only remember about 3/6 from the top of my head.

Closeup shots of hardware (cups, eyes, hooks, joints, stamped letter, etc) help the most.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
